It's a case of two down and one to go. My darling daughter has announced to the extended family that she has left Jehovah's Witnesses! Deep joy!
We went to her cousin's wedding and my daughter unlike her reclusive old JW personality of being shy, downcast and awkward, she shone, she was radiant! Wearing a new outfit, high heels and a big smile she has became a normal human being.
It was also to the surprise and pleasure of her cousins and aunts (there were no JWs present) it was like having a new member of the family joining us as an adult.
Some while back my daughter told me that she had moved to another congregation which I thought that in itself it was a good move since it showed some initiative and independence. She then stopped going altogether but although I suspected she was fading she never informed me of the details at the time--I feared she might still remain POMI. Her fade under the radar took about two years.
I have learned not to say a word of condemnation of the cult in her presence since it is always taken as a personal insult. A comparison would be for a person retiring after loyally working for a company for many years only to be told that the company was harming people and worse than useless. So I have learned to refrain from any criticism of the Borg even now after her departure--the person has to wake up by themselves.
My daughter had left the org before but drifted back to the false security of being a witness drone but this time it is with an understanding of the reasons why the religion is wrong and an acknowledgement of why and how she had been trapped in the cult as she told one of my sisters at great length, letting it all out until 4 am in fact.
A person new to the ways of the real world, once held to be the domain of Satan, is vulnerable to manipulation, it takes a while for an innocent minded ex JW to understand how to make good decisions based on personal choice but now with the whole of her non-JW family gunning for her, I'm sure she will make it.
